That Gainward with 3GB VDDR don't worth the money if you don't work with that video card.
Buy MSI GeForce GTX 580 Twin Frozr II/OC
And with the diference buy a better monitor.
LG D2342P 23 inch Cinema 3D Monitor *Includes Assassins Creed Brotherhood PC Game and 1x 3D Glasses
Dell S2330MX 23" Widescreen LED Monitor
Samsung SyncMaster S23A550H 58.4 cm (23") LED LCD Monitor
Your build look great.

I know g-unit will say not to spend $ on peripherals until last, but I say, if you can get a good system that fits your needs and end up not using the whole budget, a few extra peripherals can't hurt. :)
